This floral beauty couldn't have come at a more appropriate time. I just spent an entire day planting gardenias, freesia bulbs, and lobelia flowers. I'm spent, but am admiring this J.Crew clutch..

Plus, a piece on what it means to be a magazine editor today: "The Beat Goes Online, Minus the Glitz". I thought this was a discouraging read in that editors are getting laid off and magazines are folding, but at the same time it was an encouraging one. Brandon Holley was laid off from her glamorous Conde Nast job, but is now editor and chief of the online site, Shine. While it's far from the glamorous lifestyle she once had, she still gets to do what she loves (stay knowledgeable on fashion trends and cook up story lines), but just in an online format.
